Mimosa flower buds - seeds possible?

Hi all

I'm really liking this mimosa (pudica, I think). It has developed about a dozen flower buds. I've done a bit of research online but wondering if anyone has any advice on pollinating/seeds?

Thanks in advance

I remember this plant back when we lived in Hong Kong, it grows everywhere. As a kid it was my daily routine to poke as many of these plants when we walked to school.
Would be more amazing if it stays compact and have longer lasting flowers!

:) Nice visual.
A few more weeks, and I'm going to cut it back, see if I can keep it compact.

Saw a giant tall one at a local Chinese nursery last year....must have been almost 5 ft high...no price on it...here is a pict.
Wow - thanks for the pict! There is something about the uniformity of the leaves that I really like.
